FROM BALKRISHNA DOSHI:
“CEPT campus has become at once a small campus and a big house, making everyone aware about his or her role in it. Learning occurs simultaneously and our responses shape our lives.” Initially housing just the School of Architecture (1966), the campus has expanded to include the School of Planning (1970), the Visual Arts Centre (1978), the School of Building Science and Technology (1982), the School of Interior Design (1982), Kanoria Centre for Arts (1984), and an exhibition gallery (2012).
CEPT buildings respond to the distinct needs of each discipline, and the evolving campus allows space for continued expansion. Crisscross movements of faculty and students maintain physical and environmental interconnectedness.
Doshi blurs the definitions of interior and exterior, creating covered open spaces that seamlessly unite the two.
